Summit on Climate Opens Today

COPENHAGEN, Dec 6: 192 nations will be represented in Copenhagen today to address climate change.

Given the brief history of environmentalism many still wonder what model is being used at the 12-day conference in Copenhagen. Is this summit about science or globalism and economics?

The goal is to cooperate on environmental concerns that have an impact on the weather globally. The members are under pressure to come to an agreement by those who have vested powerful economic and national interests and have contibuted to the Copenhagen summit.

192 members of the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change will find it a challenge to broker a deal, and President Obama seeks recognition as one of the world's leaders in this attempt.  The December 19 finale will be attended by over world 100 leaders.
